Hot sunny weather for the second round hosted by Cafe Racer Festival !
Big time with great sprint races & an unforgettable party.
Sultans of Sprint 2017 second round was hosted by Cafe Racer Festival in Monthléry. The beautiful and legendary french autodrome was a great scenery for the french round of our european sprintraces challenge.
Perfect sunny weather and very cool mood were the secrets of an amazing week end for all the contenders. On the track the Sultans of Sprint rock the event with great races. This time Tommy #7 from Schlachtwerk team with his Yamaha “Skinny Beast” was the fastest just in front of Amir #77 from Mellow Motorcycles team & Enzo #12 from Libner Racing team. This is a great result for Amir and Enzo who are entering the Sultans of Sprint challenge for the first time in 2017 with brand new bikes !
Paul Cardy from Shed Hot Customs (UK) was also attending for the first time with his BMW “Velocity Baby” #59 had a great race against Brice Canayer and “the Bee” #34 from Bcan Race (FR) who won it.
Ludo from Crazy Racers team #18 did also his first sprint race on a customer bike as his “Phoenix” Ducati wasn’t ready on time. We had also the pleasure to welcome the Triumph Bobber Turbo from Triumph factory to race with us for this round: Great fast ride even if it wasn’t enough this time against Enzo Libner #12 who finished on the podium then after with the fast & beautiful Ducati “Felino” !
First victory also for Laurence #17 from Lucky Cat Garage team (FR) who managed to take advantage of her “Bombinette” against Tom Libner #3 on Triumph “Dragonfly” and then Sami Panseri #24 on Ducati “ciaparat” from Milano Cafe Racers team (IT).
Saturday night, the party started with a great BBQ organized & offered by Libner Racing team. Then a crazy limbo contest was curated by the Sultans of Sprint “night life management” crew, Young Guns Speed Shop, to give an extra 10 points to the riders who managed to dance & pass under the height of their bike: that was quite a challenge for some of them but overall a very good time and kidsfun for every team !
Now Schlachtwerk #7 & Mellow Motorcycles #77 are tied for the lead after round two followed by Libner Racing #12 and Milano Cafe Racers #24. Philipp Ludwig #46 from Kraftstoffschmiede team willalso be back in the game at the next race and his very fast BMW “Hercules” could change also deeply the rankings …
